Jenolan Caves are the largest and most spectacular caves in Australia. They are also amongst the most outstanding and oldest cave systems in the world.
The caves are special to the local Gundungurra people, who knew about them for millennia. In 1837, after a pastoralist stumbled upon the caves, they were revealed to the wider world. As Jenolan has been under government protection since 1866, today’s visitors experience an unspoiled natural wonder.
Choose a fascinating guided tour from 4 awe-inspiring caves. You are never too young or too old to immerse yourself in the beauty of the underworld, as part of a small, exclusive tour group.
Above ground, the licensed Caves Cafe offers snacks and light lunch daily. Unwind in the magnificent Chisolm’s Restaurant, one of the most historic restaurants in the Blue Mountains. Built as a grand dining room, Chisolm’s features are a style fusion of warm Victorian and stately Art Deco, all still there for you to enjoy, along with a delicious modern Australian menu.
Jenolan’s centerpiece is the iconic Caves House, a hotel since 1897. Choose a great combo – a cave tour with either High Tea (so decadent) or Chisolm’s Weekend Lunch. Use your Dine and Discover vouchers. Or stay awhile, for a real getaway, with our value ‘Eat, Dream, Explore’ package.
Every Friday and Saturday night in July, celebrate Yulefest (Christmas in July), with festive feast, chocolates, huge Christmas tree, decorations, live music, cocktails, Santa and a small gift for each child.
Jenolan is located in a deep valley, on the western edge of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The huge Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve has been an animal sanctuary since 1920. So, drive slowly, keep your eyes open for wildlife crossing the road and have an unforgettable time at Jenolan.
